Firemen Battle
Dangerous Fire
Blase In Business Section Early
Tuesday Morning Put Out
By Firemen.
Members of the Shelby fire de
partment did exceptionally good
work In extinguishing what threat
ened to be a serious blase in the
South LaFayettc street business sec
tion shortly before 2 o’clock Tues
day morning.
Night Policeman Rufus Sparks
turned in the alarm when he no
ticed clouds of smoke pouring from
the store building occupied by the
Wakefield floral shop. There was so
much smoke when the firemen ar
rived that it was & difficult matter
for a time to locate the source of
the smoke. The blaze when located
was found to have started at a
partition on the second floor to the
rear of the floral shop.
The damage was not great and
had it not been for the early de
tection of the fire and rapid work
on the part of firemen it would have
soon developed into a very serious
conflagration. Scores of citizens
turned out at the early hour to
witness the fire-fighting.

Negro Known Here Asks Hoover To
Save Him From Death Chair In S. C.
Attacked White Girl Near Grover.
Had Robbed Many Stores
Before Assault,
Gaffney, May 20.—Facing death
In the electric chair at the peniten
tiary in Columbia, June 12, J. P.
Moore, 22-year-old negro held in
the Cherokee county jail here, has
dispatched a letter to President
Hoover at Washington asking the
nation's chief executive to intervene
in his behalf.
Sheriff Zeb V. Whelehel, who
placed the letter in the mall for the
negro, said Moore asked the presi
dent to commute his death sen
tence to life imprisonment.
Moore was found guilty by a jury
in general sessions court here last
Tuesday of assault with intent to
ravish a white woman near Grover.
The law provides the death penalty.
Judge Dunlap pronounced the sen
tence late Tuesday, naming June
12., as the execution date.
Sheriff Whelche! said he advised
the condemned man to appeal to
Govern Blackwood, rather tnan to
President Hoover, but Moore be
lieved his chance would be bettor
l with the nresident. The sheriff told
him Mr. Hoover had nothing to do
with such matters, while the gov
ernor can extend clemency if he
will.
Moore will be sent to Columbia as
early as possible after the begin
ning of the 20-day period before the
date for his execution. Sheriff
Whelchel said. The law prohibits a
condemned person from being in
carcerated in the death house long
er than 20 days before the death
date. After his arrival at the peni
tentiary the prisoner will be exam
ined by authorities of the South
Carolina State hospital to deter
mine his sanity, a practice that is
followed with all condemned per
sons, according to informati'on given
Sheriff Whelchel.
Since his conviction Moore has
told local officers that between the
time he was released from the coun
ty chaingang on April 10 and Ap
ril 13, tlie date of the attempted as
sault, he broke into half a do<5Cn
stores and houses at various places
seeking money. He had just com
pleted a sentence for house breaking
and larceny. He is said to have been
in trouble several times at Sneiby
for various offenses.
Butler Dixon Demonstrates I.lvc
At-Homc Ideas. Cotton A
Sideline.
ButierDuton in No. 4 township is
regarded by many as ‘'the most sys
tematic and methodical farmer in
Cleveland county,” a farmer who
“lives and home and boards at the
same place” because he practices
the "live at home” doctrine enun
ciated by Governor Gardner as the
only salvation for North Carolina
farmers.
Cotton limit. ' .- |
Cotton is a sideline with him. He
newer plants over an acre for each
member of the family. There are
nine children, all active and inter
ested in the various phases of farm
ing. Working under their father
and imbibing his knowledge of fer
tilizer analysis, insect control, dis
eases of livestock and poultry, fruit
trees, vegetables, etc. Mr, Butler is I
not only a scientific farmer, but a
carpenter, painter, blacksmith, me
chanic. He has an abundance of,
ttools, most of them home-made and
every tool has a place. A child
plight be sent to the house from
across a field for a monkey wrench
and the wrench is readily found in
its proper place.
Barn Full of Feed.
Land in No. 4 township was con
sidered at one time too poor to rot'
a stump. But scientific farmers like
Dixon, the Goforths and others
make the section around Bethlehem:
church one of the prettiest and mast
productive of the county. Grain and
forage crops are to be seen on every
farm and Mr, Dixon’s bam is filled
with alfalfa, pea vine hay, fodder,
vetch, oats, rye and barley, some of
it raised two or three years ago. Ail
stock is sleek and well fed and wor
ry not where the next meal is com
ing from. It is there before their
eyes.
Out in a seed house Mr. Dixon
has a dozen or more different var
ieties of field and garden seed of
the choicest varieties. He always has
a surplus to sell and this brings a
neat revenue.'
Prize Winning Stock.
Down in the pasture are five fine
cows, ail registered or subject to
registration. One Jersey has brought
in $80 in prizes at the county fair.
A quartet of fine calves are com
ing on. A brood sow has dropped 81
pigs in four years and this gives a
surplus of pigs to sell. Further down
in the pines are to be seen 250 two
pound Rhode Island friers. They
were hatched from Dixon eggs at a
custom hatchery and every week a
few go to market. "How do 250 friers
get into that small chicken house?”
Mr. Dixon was asked. “Why, it's like
ushering at a church. The late com
ers have to search for a seat and
Till up the front rows.” said he. Lay
ing hens ar£ ui a different part of
the yard in a sanitary, well venti
lated house with a concrete floor.

House To Vote
Again Today On
Revenue Report
Proposes 15-Cent
Land Tax
Compromise Revenue Bill Voted
Down First Time By 5 Votes.
• Edvards For it.
Raleigh, May 20.—Reversing l he
position it took late Monday night,
the house yesterday afternoon voted
57 to 50 to reconsider the vote bv
w^ftfh it rejected the revenue con
ference report based on a 15-cent
ad valorem tax. The first rejection
was by a 60-55 vote.
Before any new action could be
taken on the report or on a motion
of Representative A. D. MacLean cf
Beaufort that the house could mt
consider a report unless it was act
ed upon by the senate, the house ad -
Journed until today.
The senate yesterday morning
wrangled over a motion by Senator
Hinsdale of Wake, an opponent ol
any ad valorem tax for school sup
port and author of the Hinsdale lux
ury tax. This motion would have
placed the senate on record as re
jecting the report, but the upper
house also adjourned until today
without voting.
During the senate debate Hins
dale was charged with being unfair
by 8enator Horton c< Chatham. The
Wake senator made his motion to
reject and immediately called for n
vote, precluding debate. Horton said
that he had the right to hear the
report read or explained so that he
might know its contents.
The motion to reconsider the
house vote was made by Pitts of
Catawba, who changed his- vote
Monday night so that he might ask
for reconsideration. #
Cat Costs.
Action on the conference report
was not taken until the house had
debated two hours on a resolution
of Holmes of Pitt to require a 20 per
cent cut in costs of administration
of the state government and had
adopted a substitute. The substitute
provides If any cut has to be made
in teachers’ salaries or funds for the
six months' schools as a result of a
failure of the 1931 revenue bill to
raise sufficient funds. all state
agencies, institutions, departments,
and employes must receive an equal
cut. The resolution was sent to the
senate* for its consideration. It does
not direct any percentage cut in ap
propriation.
Should the house not again re
verse itself, and the conference re
port moves through the assembly
In the six required day, it could ad
journ Tuesday.
Five representatives reversed their
position on the conference report
overnight and five men who voted
or were paired to reject it Monday
night were absent or unrecorded
Tuesday.
Representative Henry Edwards
voted for the conference revenue bill
when It was defeated Monday night
and was among those voting for re
consideration today.
